Now that R is 11 and L is at school, time works differently for us. It is not as full-on as when they are younger. R is happy to disappear for a few hours to do her own thing, so I now have more time for myself than I have had for a long time.
R also seriously considered going to school for Secondary, so we went through the stages of applying, going for visits etc and after much thought R decided that unlike L, school was not for her. So, I had also started to think of what I would do if she did go to school!!
This has led to me really having more time for art, and most recently I have put some of my art work here: Redbubble LaHickmana
I am so pleased with how it is going and how lovely the products are!!! I’ve bought quite a lot and am really delighted with how good it makes my art look!!! Confidence builder! I’ve only just reached the point of feeling brave enough to show people my paintings and this is really helping!
